LOVE this recipe! I've been using it for years. It's simple, quick & a great do ahead recipe for those nights when you are pressed for time. Wonderful as leftovers too. It's like a deep dish pizza so kids like it. One hint, usually turns out better when you cook the crust for 10 minutes BEFORE piling in the meat & cheese.
